You only need to read a few pages to see that Tucker Took It is a "corny" book. When it came to finding corn to draw, I didn't have to travel far! Farms with cornfields are all around my central Pennsylvania town.
In fact, I asked a farmer friend if I could come over and take pictures of his corn. He thought that was a little strange. When I started to put up my step ladder inside one of his fields, he thought I was really strange!
But I wanted to paint one scene looking down on corn and knew I couldn't just make that up out of my head. The photos I took were a great help.
